Roots: Working With Your Regrowth

 If you color your hair you are very familiar with the constant problem of having to retouch regrowth. I am way too familiar with roots. I hate having to get my retouch done and I am just waiting for the day they invent a blonde pill so this seemingly endless cycle of lightening will stop. However, until that day comes having a few ways to work with your roots is always good. Click the notes for more. –– Kelly Rowe

Tinted dry shampoo                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

 The miracle styler dry shampoo comes in lightly tinted formulas that can help blend roots while providing lift. Both these working together will soften your regrowth and line of demarcation.

Texture is the best way to blur regrowth and fading toners. Make sure texture goes to the root and the hair doesn’t hang flat.

Make braids pop.                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

You may hate your regrowth but it can be used to your advantage to make some 3D looking braids. When you French or Dutch braid, the braid will be one color while the color it sits on will be another allowing the plait to pop off the head giving it an artsy vibe.

Don’t wear a center part.                                                                                                                                                                                                            

 A center part will really show off the amount of regrowth but if you do a deep side part hair flip to one side or the other it actually makes hair have some depth and look better. Embrace the flip!
